The latest installment of HLTH’s Juicing with Gary interview series featured AiR Healthcare CEO Jaclyn Wainwright.
Among other things, Wainwright discussed the importance of behavioral health issues, and how the industry should move toward making services more accessible and inviting.
“One in four people has a behavioral health issue — this year — so … in a lifetime, just about everybody will struggle with some form of behavioral health,” she said during the interview. “We need to make that a thing that’s OK, that people understand.”
Wainwright said if people can move past the idea that seeing a behavioral health professional is “shameful,” they might be more prone to seek treatment.
Juicing with Gary welcomes health care professionals each week to discuss the future of health care.
